Powering ahead: Australia leading the world in renewable energy build rates
Matthew Stocks, Ken Baldwin and Andrew Blakers have coauthored a report on global and country specific renewable energy build rates, which finds that Australia is leading the world in the installation of renewable electricity capacity. The Australian per
capita rate is 2.5 times the next best (Germany). This is 4-5 times faster per capita than the
European Union, Japan, the USA or China and ten times faster than the world average. To read more, please download the report at this link.
